It’s the start of a new season for the More Money Podcast (Season 6 to be specific), and I have got quite the line-up of guests for you, let me tell ya!
And similar to last year, this season definitely has a theme. Well, two themes really: financial independence and women authors. For this first episode of Season 6, we’re gonna start with the financial independence theme, since I interview well-known radio personality and influencer Buzz Bishop.
As I mentioned in the episode, I’ve been listening to Buzz since I was a tween, so it’s pretty surreal that I’m now interviewing him on my show! But a lot has changed in his life since those days at Z95.3 in Vancouver. On top of doing radio across the country, he also has two boys and founded DadCamp, a community, and website that’s focused on getting dads together to learn from each other, bond, and create a discussion surrounding the role of fathers today.
Since Buzz is already a successful media personality, DadCamp isn’t something he created to just earn more money on the side. He wanted to create it as a way to help give back. So, with all of the money he earns from it, he flips to Diabetes Canada and Team Diabetes, two causes he’s very passionate about. Is Buzz the best?
Aside from talking about DadCamp, we dive into his perspective on money, how he manages his personal finances and invests them, and also how he teaches his kids about money. He learned a lot from his dad, so he wants to make sure he does the same for his two boys. And he teaches them by weaving it seamlessly into regular conversations. Making it a natural topic of discussion is key, as well as being open to answering questions.
He also empowers his kids by giving them work to do on his blog so they can earn money. I think this is a great way to teach kids about saving, budgeting, and earning money in a very practical and hands-on way. Kids learn best by doing, so I have a feeling his kids will be experts by the time they reach their 20s.
